HomeMusicReview: Eyehategod Eyehategod “10 Years of Abuse (and still broke)” (Century Media) Noisy Sludge-core/Doom at its finest is the easy description of one of New Orleanss seminal southern serving of thick as mud take on Black Sabbath. A more experimental version compared to hometown mates Crowbar (who was immortalized as fat music by Beavis and Butt-Head), this is uglier, nastier, and a lot grittier. This disk is actually a compilation of unreleased material including four demo tracks and a couple of different live sets. Live and demo leans towards low quality recording, and things can get a little dicey capturing such feedback-drenched sounds with out good quality recording equipment. Sometimes songs go dim and do a speaker dance: both, left, right, left, both, left, right, both, left, right Often losing any sense of time, the plodding sound oozes at length, but just as suddenly goes to a frantic mid-paced assault. The ominous and foreboding wall of feedback overlaying thick bass and meaty drums creates the bulk of Eyehategods heaviness. Propelled by southern fried grooving riffs, this is a juicy combo of loud and intoxicated music. The CD has some great looped intros with blatant drug references like smoke a little grass, play a lot of music. Be prepared, your friends might not be as welcoming to the high-pitch feedback wails of Eyehategod. My girlfriend wouldn’t even let me listen to it with her in the car. BONUS!!!
